Partnering opportunity

Test & validation equipment for aerospace sector

Summary

The Greek SME designs and develops products for the sectors of Space, Defense and Aeronautics. The company offers innovative test & validation equipment for the mentioned sectors. Particularly for the Space sector, the equipment developed is capable to deal simultaneously with different satellite-spacecraft on-board data networks and protocols used in this sector. The company is seeking SMEs or space agencies or integrators for technical or commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Partner sought

The Greek company is seeking for: - SMEs with the capability to support locally the products, for a commercial agreement with technical assistance. Due to the nature of the sector, the partner sought should be relevant to the sector and with the ability to reach space agencies. - Integrators or space agencies wishing to use the products for delivering customized solutions or EGSEs to end customers. The cooperation in this case will be under a technical cooperation agreement. The company will provide all necessary technical assistance in both cases.

Description

The Greek SME was founded in 1995. The company has a long history of providing development services and products in the space, defense and aeronautics sectors. The company works very closely with the European industry having provided software and hardware solutions to the largest industrial companies and organizations in the European continent and beyond. Since the entry of Greece to ESA, the company invests in space technologies at an accelerating pace, being today one of the most successful Greek organizations in the space market. The main competence of the company is the provision of software & hardware solutions mainly for the communication systems with special emphasis on test & validation. Since 2007, various activities in the validation of Space related components (following the communication protocols: SpW, SpW-T, SpW-D, IMA TSP, SCOC3, etc.) have been successfully handled, internal infrastructure (i.e. representative test-beds for on-board network architecture) has gradually been built. The company has developed its own platform/product to address the needs of various mission Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE), Special Check Out Equipment (SCOE) or Data Front End (DFE) configurations. The product line dedicated to equipment for Space includes today the following products: - Protocol Validation Platform for on-boards data networks. An advanced, integrated, high performing, platform for the simulation, validation & monitoring of a wide range of satellite/spacecraft on-board communication protocols and data networks. The variety of features makes it suitable for use in many different areas. The platform is supporting simultaneously a wide range of protocols (RMAP, PTP, CCSDS, Space Packet, TM/TC, CANopen, etc.) and network interfaces (SpaceWire, ECSS MIL-STD-1553, ECSS CAN). - An advanced, integrated, high performing network traffic capture, recording and analysis tool. The recorder can be used with SpaceWire, MIL-STD-1553 and/or CAN protocols. - Simulator, an advanced platform with traffic generation capabilities that simulates devices (SpaceWire/MIL-STD-1553 protocols) or instruments enabling spacecraft integration tests before the availability of flight models. The company has participated in many projects, in collaboration with ESA and leading companies. References are available. The company is seeking SMEs or space agencies or integrators for commercial or technical agreements with technical assistance.

Advantages and innovations

Testing & monitoring tools for satellite/spacecraft on-board data networks, specialized EGSEs, on-board data handling electronics & software validation.. The products can deal simultaneously with the different communication & network protocols of the industry (SpaceWire, MIL-STD-1553, CAN, Others) and this is a clear innovative and competitive advantage. The products have been extensively validated in various avionics test-beds, and have been also certified for installation in mission EGSE test-beds & connection to flight equipment (FMEA available, CE, EMC, hazard analysis available, etc.). Specific instances of the above products have been or are currently installed in: - The ESTEC avionics test lab in Noordwijk - The Solar Orbiter AIT testbed at Airbus Defence & Space in Stevenage - The GAIA avionics test bench (AVM) at Airbus Defence & Space in Toulouse

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
